Great place! Food was good, drinks were good, it's not too pricey. The rooftop is beautiful.
Patio is lovely, tables well spaced, staff did a great job. Just a bit difficult to talk to the table next to us because of the loud music. Otherwise a great experience.
At the entrance to the rooftop, the host was pretty rude. We were giving her our information, she wasn't even replying and giving us attitude. That wasn't a good start but the food and drinks were good.
Went to the Pilot for Brunch on Saturday afternoon. We sat on the Flight Deck and it was perfect. We felt really safe with the protocols they’ve put in place there. You can see the staff constantly cleaning and sanitizing touch points and tables. Super spacious patio on the roof top with shade and sun options. The food is delicious and the drinks were refreshing! Service was great and attentive. One of my favourite places in this area to have a drink or eat some favourites.
Staff was excellent, food was good and overall a good experience.
Took long for waiter to give service. Food was not prepared well, wings were overdone.
Love the patio. Service was great. Food however was all right. Typical restaurant menu. No wow factor. Just good!
The set up was good and organized. I appreciated that they were able to lower the shades to help block the scorching sun, though I wish I had asked earlier. Staff was attentive and they did a good job at social distancing. The food was good and the prices were fair. Fortunately no construction noise going on. Nice to have this rooftop patio in the heart of the city!
Enjoyed the fish and chips. The service and atmosphere were great!
The construction was a bummer because it ruined the view. Not their fault but kinda takes away from eating outside
We ordered nachos and The Patty Melt. Both were good. Service was very attentive. Overall good value for money. They have a retractable ceiling, so come rain or shine, you will have a good time.
The vibe was great! Everyone was happy and laughing. The service could have been better, no one was rude but the servers didn’t seem very pleased to be there. The food was very basic, I would’ve been fine just drinking there and eating somewhere else
Nice rooftop! All precautions to avoid covid 19. Will come back!
One order came out 15 minutes before the other, which made for awkward and nonsensical waiting.
Awesome patio for lunch and drinks. I had the fish tacos and a few cocktails and they were delicious. Excellent service. Highly recommend!
The food was good, the server was really nice. Love the rooftop!
Tasteless food ruined my night not at all worth it never ever gonna go to this restaurant!
Thank you for taking the time to review us, although we're so sorry to hear about your experience here at The Pilot. We'd like to speak with you more about what happened so please feel to respond here and we can try and make it right.
It was great! Food and drinks were great and our server was perfect. It was a lovely evening, just a little bit humid haha
Best roof top patio In Toronto. Great people, great service all around.
The food & service have never been a disappointment. The only thing I wouldn't recommend is for someone with bad knees or leg problems to book a reservation on the flight deck, there's a lot of stairs to climb, and to my knowledge the stairs are the only way to get up to rooftop patio.
Perfect hang out during covid...shhh. Don’t tell anyone.
Awesome food and drinks, excellent service, beautiful patio! I’m very impressed with all the changes they’ve made on the patio to prevent transmission of COVID19: social distancing, the option of using a QR scanner on my phone to see an electronic menu instead of a physical one, masks on all staff, coordinated times on stairs for walking up or down so you don’t run into anyone, excellent and thorough cleaning, etc. I felt really safe and will definitely be going back!
Just step your game up and make sure you know what time the kitchen is closed and inform your customers... and serve fresh food not 30 mins cold food.
Thank you for taking the time to review us. I really apologize about your negative experience. We've been working out some issues as we reopen and we've taken your feedback about the kitchen closing times and server communication to our staff and will try our best not to have this happen again. We'd like to speak with you more about your visit so please feel free to message us here. Sorry again about your experience.
Good hygiene/distancing. Great staff. Good food. The rooftop patio is spacious and attractive, and protected.
Great place to hang out for patio season, especially while the pandemic is happening. A lot of open space on the patio. Food and drinks were great, they have many options and variety! Overall, it’s really casual, and I recommend coming here with friends to hang out for food and drinks
The patio set was very good during this COVID time. Very spacious.
Good pub grub. No red beers, only lagers, IPA's, some sours in cans and sout
They did a great job at COVID measures.
I asked for the pilot burger and it was amazing: juicy and flavourful.
The drinks are poured with love and respect - GOOD TIMES!!!
Everything was excellent ! Staff very friendly and attentive. Food hot and delicious !
Tasty food with generous portions, excellent customer service, expansive rooftop patio views of downtown Toronto, and even clean bathrooms. Overall a great experience and I would gladly return!
Appreciate the social distancing and other measures out in place. Friendly staff, great service. Fabulous patio.
Lovely night, food is good value and really tasty, our waitress was really lovely. Everything was really great.
Food was good. Had a couple of burgers. Patio was decent during the covid issue. A bit pricey but the portions were decent. I’d go again.
We had a great moment!
The place is nice and they respect all the social distancing policies.
First time there walked by it many times! told many friends who will be going during the summer months. Steps from yorkville walked around after our dinner, staff was so nice outside an upstairs very friendly great timing on checking up on our table. Best patio best staff in toronto by far. If i could give it 20 stars i would keep doing a great job.
The Pilot servers are always pleasant, prompt and helpful, which says a ton about the bar/restaurant‘s management. The Flight Deck is well planned, with fewer tables than in the past. It’s still my favourite bar in Toronto, even with the changes wrought by COVID-19.
Excellent service and food. Thank you!
Amazingly efficient Covid precautions. Upstairs patio spacious and welcoming. Friendly and helpful staff. The food was delicious. We had a chef’s special Buttered chicken, and a mushroom wrap. Both delicious
